CFK Valley Innovation Day
Agoria organizes the second CFK Valley Innovation Day on June 29th 2016 in Brussels. The event is focused on composites for railway sector applications.
Currently, composite materials are only used for non-structural parts in the railway sector, for instance for tables and partition walls. Nevertheless, using composites for structural elemants could result in a reduction of 20 to 30% for trains. This weight gain would lead to lower energy consumption and CO2 reduction of at least five percent. This is a clear driver to switch to this type of light weight
